Our mission is to provide high-quality education to those on the margins, so they can use their voice to create a better future. By combining technology, community, and award-winning educators, we have created a unique impact-based program that empowers marginalized youth and migrant workers and creates a generation of leaders who will ignite sustainable social impact.
Beneficiaries: Youth, Women, Ethnic minorities, Migrant domestic workers
Top 3 challenges:
